Wonderful Corn Fritters Recipe

One of my favorite recipes to make is for the Corn Fritters that I remember making so often over at my sister’s house a lot, back when she was married to her first husband, the father of her three wonderful boys. Her middle son was good around the kitchen and we would have fun together listening to music, trying new recipes, one of his favorites being the corn fritter also, so we made a lot of corn fritters in those years.

I haven’t made any in quite some time so I thought that I would break out my recipe book and make up a batch the other evening, and I have to tell you, they came out perfect. I love that you can refrigerate the left over ones and just nuke for 1 minute for a great anytime snack, and the more real butter that you put on it the better.

  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 Eggs (separated)
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Can Corn (drained)
  • 2 or 3 Tb Oil –  additional amount may be needed to cover the entire bottom of your frying pan, depending on the size of the pan you use

Mix flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In separate bowl of medium size, whip egg whites on high, with electric mixer, until stiff. And in a yet larger bowl, beat the egg yolks and stir in the milk, and drained corn, and the flour mixture that you just put aside, mix thoroughly. Fold in the whipped egg whites and blend together for a few minutes.

Drop by tablespoons into the hot oil and fry for approximately 5 minutes, or until nicely browned and cooked thoroughly in the middle. Once they are on your plate, smother with real butter and enjoy.

TGIF

TGIF, what is there left to say. It’s been a long week and I’m looking forward to the week end, although I’ll be spending a good amount of it outside trying to take care of the yard. It is beginning to grow like crazy and I need to keep it from getting out of control to where I will most likely just throw my hands up in the air and be done with it all. That would suck considering how much time and energy I put into the planting, weeding, clearing, feeding, raking and of course the watering that I have done all on my own this year.

Dirty Water

I can’t stand the way that my water looks, smells and tastes. After I take my daily bath and let the water run out and drain there is a lot of black grainy junk left in the tub. Looks like I’m going to need to contact a water service company. I’ve been needing to find a replacement for my Water Heater Indianapolis, that might help with some of the problems as well.

Funny how sometimes when I think of dirty water, the song Dirty Water, by The Standells, starts playing in my head. I think this song was a hit in the mid 1960s. My mother is always listening to the Oldies radio station (it plays music from the 50′ and the 60’s,) so I have been exposed to a lot of different types of music throughout the years.

My father was totally into Country Music, I was never a big fan of it but always enjoyed being around my Dad so I kinda got used to it but it’s not real high up on my list of favorite music.

Personally I like a lot of the music from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s. I was that I had been around when Disco dancing was all the rage. I know a lot of people hate on Disco, but to me it always provides me with a good consistent beat!

The Knots Prayer

One of my friends is going through some very trying times. She just recently lost her husband and is now raising a teenager on her own. Another friend sent this out to her and cc’d me. I like what is says, hope she enjoys it and I just wanted to post it here. Strange how the author is unknown.

Mom’s Advice for Me

My mom told me about bank card processing when I was first opening my wedding gallery and it was good advice. I wasn’t sure how to go about all the logistical elements of having a wedding dress store but I knew I needed to figure it out – I had a ton of dresses and a great place to display them but no real method for running a business.

My brides come to me now because they know they’re going to get the best care and attention on their biggest purchase – that’s what I provide. I’m also a bit cheaper than some of the girls in the area and though I think it’s great that they can sell those couture dresses I always want there to be an affordable option. I don’t understand how some people can afford to spend five thousand dollars on one dress but God bless them. You won’t find them here in my store, though, that’s not how I work! I’m all about a great dress for a great price.
